Following 2015's programme of collaboration between young UK and Austrian composers, Soundings culminates with an exciting musical performance from RCM musicians and renowned performers including Sarah Dacey (soprano), Mary Dullea (piano), Darragh Morgan (conductor), Christopher Redgate (oboe), Rowland Sutherland (flute), Max Welford (clarinet). Once again, works by all participating Soundings composers will be performed: Seán ClancyChristian Mason, and Kate Whitley from the UK, and Mirela IvičevićHannes Kerschbaumer, and Daniel Moser from Austria.
